anymore with romney ahead in florida. the very fact that michigan and pennsylvania, which obama carried by 16 points and 10 points four years ago -- have gotten close i think has to be an indication that the affluent suburbs, oakland, macomb, livingston in michigan, have been moving towards romney in a significant way, and i think that the democrats are giving you static analysis there. and i think there may be a dynamic at work here. the affluent suburbs are places that people generally tend to turn out in large numbers, and we've seen signs that republicans have more enthusiasm this year. i think one reason ohio is closer is that affluent suburban counties are only an eighth of the statewide votes and a warsmer michigan. >> the romney campaign is saying they're making major investment in ohio, time and money. are they making -- taking a gamble by making a bet on ohio, that if they lose, they will not have fought or invested a lot of money or time in michigan and pennsylvania, which they might win? are they making a long bet on ohio? >> well, i think they're probably making a correct b
those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high income people than people in the lower income category. >> the swing over the last 20 years in affluent suburbs has been attributed to culture, gay marriage and the southern tilt of the republican party, is the swing back this year really because of the economy trumping culture in the minds of most voters? >> well, i think that's true of all segments of voters. the economy is trumping the cultural issue of. it rubbed them out. i think
hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but he is certainly going to win at least one so he is going to get at least the 15 votes. this business that everybody should hang on what happens in ohio is ridiculous. he could lose ohio and carry either pennsylvania or minnesota or michigan and wisconsin or new hampshire and iowa and win the election. and it is ridiculous to say that everything hinges on ohio. ohio is proving more in tractable and more dead even. but i believe that if you look at the polls in iowa they have many -- too many democrats and too few republicans and proper polls in iowa would show romney one or two points ahead. but frankly my view,
believe at this point that governor romney can win pennsylvania? >> of course, he can. republicans don't never win it. in 2010 they elected five new republican congressmen, a republican senator, a republican governor and republican majorities in both houses of the legislature. what more has a state got to do? i think he will win, pennsylvania, and i think he will win wisconsin and i think he has a very good chance of winning in michigan. of course, all of this preis supposes that the other side doesn't steal it which is something we need to work on. >> greta: ground game. level of importance between now and november 6 is what? >> very important. the republicans lost four senate seats in 2010 because they didn't have a good ground game. and the democrats and the unions outworked them. now, i think the republicans have don't the message and are working like crazy on the ground making millions of phone calls and home visits. it is incredible. i go out every day and i'm amazed by what they are doing. i learned yesterday or two days ago, greta, that the united nations has decided to send in
is governor romney's must-win, same can be said for president obama in pennsylvania where the latest "philadelphia inquirer" poll has the president up by a sizable margin. governor romney has narrowed the lead to six points there. 49-43 in pennsylvania. mitt romney's running mate is on the about us hoeding across ohio. congressman paul ryan on a two-day eight-stop trip through the critical battleground state calling on voters to support the republican ticket. nbc news correspondent ron mott on the bus with the vp nominee. i understand you just arrived in circleville, ohio? >> reporter: we are behind schedule by about 40 minutes, i would say. paul ryan just finished up a quick brief address with supporters outside lindsey's bakery. i'm told it's world famous. they've got pumpkin donuts they put on the bus here. we have two more events in about 120 or so miles left to go. this is a must-win for the campaign. that's the way they're positioning it. ohio senator rob portman said he can't see this republican ticket winning the white house without winning here in ohio. no republican has eve
two or three ahead . pennsylvania 20 votes where it shows mitt romney three ahead and ohio 18. tied . wisconsin 10, tied and michigan 15. they are tided. and minnesota 16 and obama is ahead by three . nevada 9. obama ahead by two. and iowa 6 they are tied. he's going to win at least 15 votes from the states and probably more like 45 or 50. and i think romney is on track to a significant victory and i think when we look back at this we will wonder why we thought it was so close. >> when it comes to women voters romney closed the gap particularly after his debate. women will tell you the economy is the top concern. yesterday's numbers showing a slight rise in the gdp and final unemployment report that comes out before the election. could it have an impact if it shows improvement as well? >> first of all 2.0 percent is enemic and border line recession . i do expect the job numbers to show a huge improvement on friday. it is called bls. and drop the l for the preelection data that is coming out. i don't think it will be a impact. what do you believe? my speeches or your own eyes. and st
. >> reporter: trying to look like it's in the driver's seat the romney campaign launched a fundraising effort to compete in two states the president considers his -- pennsylvania and minnesota. >> peter, i want to bring in kristen as well and get a sense where things are going now. let me start with you, kristen. ten days to go and you said the race is deadlocked. what's the obama strategy down the stretch? >> reporter: well, lester, president obama is focusing his closing argument on the issue of trust. he's trying to make the case that mitt romney can't be trusted because he said he's moved to the middle on key issues like taxes, foreign policy and education. the president arguing that he's still the best candidate to get the economy back on track. he continues to enlist former president bill clinton to help. the two will campaign together in florida on monday. the one thing looming over the closing argument, the october jobs report. it comes out the friday before voters head to the polls. lester? >> peter, a candidate can't be in many places at one time. what's the plan for romney with ten
off funding to planned parenthood. anncr: no matter what mitt romney's ads say. we know what he'll do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. and this is maryland. teacher: this is west virginia, pennsylvania, delaware. every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty million gaming at casinos in these other states. question seven will build a new casino and bring table games to baltimore... generating hundreds of millions for schools. and that money has to go to education. it's the law. so vote for question seven. so we can stop spending all that money here, and keep maryland money in classrooms like mine. when we think no one is looking. is what we do... mitt romney: believe that they are victims. anncr: mitt romney thought no one was looking when... he attacked forty-seven percent of americans. his companies shipped jobs overseas. his plan cuts millionaires' taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare... and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i
interesting that mitt romney is expanding those battleground states. we're seeing more and more states being added to contestable states, including wisconsin, pennsylvania, colorado, nevada, maybe even iowa, maybe even michigan. so mitt romney is actually expanding the field on which he's playing, while president obama is going negative and basically just trying to create the fire wall maria discussed earlier to be able to ensure his presidency. >> maria cardona and amy holmes, thank you so much. great conversation this morning. >>> a level playing field in the workplace? women want it. studies say it's still not happening. we're going to dig deeper into an issue that's been front and center in the campaigns in recent weeks. tridion safety l which can withstand over three and a half tons. small in size. big on safety. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing
to victory has been -- always been -- he's had multiple paths, whereas romney campaign niche has really decided early on that they were going to try to fight on the same path rather than trying to expand it, so the fact that pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, states that they will talked about putting in play, they never spent a dime there, means that it all comes down to those fire wall states. >> i hear you telling me, then we'll get charlie's perspective, i hear you telling me, even though if i look at a list of polls, it may show romney plus 2, romney plus 5, romney plus 1. there are a lot of obama leaning polls as well, but even though i look at those polls, you're telling me that it sounds like obama has the edge and he's actually going to win the election? >> if you look structurally, he has an advantage right now. now, if those states happen to flip, and they have gotten closer, and there's a debate of course and charlie, i know, will have a lot to say about this, about what polls to believe in, are polls even trustworthy now, everybody seems to have their hone poll. i don't kno
calling from pennsylvania this morning. go ahead. caller: just an observation. i noticed from your earlier show today and this gentleman here it seems president obama has few offices in the swing states yet romney is ahead in florida and north carolina and virginia and in ohio. and i'm wondering is it a reflection of these men's lives. because i see romney as an organized business man who knows how to put things together which and i see our president as every time there is a situation he has a plan, he has a plan which doesn't seem to come to fruition and he's flying by the seat of his pants. so i'm wondering with all these field offices how could he possibly be blind? guest: well, i think it has to do with the type of politics that democrats run and republicans run. so here in north carolina, for example, a lot of the politics -- this is a state that has the highest for example frin population of any of the -- african-american population of any of the battleground states. so a lot of the neighborhood is door to door knocking old fashioned type organizing and that's boots on the ground typ
